Jesus, You are not Lord,
of us believers. We are the lords of our lives. We know what’s best for ourselves and others. So we want You to bless our plans/agenda for ministry. Our joy and peace depend on our circumstances, how our ministry is going, how well we’re obeying, or trusting, all about us, instead of Your enjoyment of us, just as we are, and we enjoying ourselves the same. So we have only fleshly human power, which does not wow the pre-believers around us. Thank You that they can see what little difference You make in our lives, regarding our joy and peace. Be glorified by the difference You make in us, going forward. Thank You for the impossibility of us changing ourselves, so You alone will receive glory if any change happens in the future.
